Another Loss in the Family

Friday's good mood was misplaced. Artemis slipped away from us this morning, just after breakfast. The Viking found her when he went to give her the antibiotics.

We've buried her in the sunny spot by the pell in the backyard, near her fishpond and where she can supervise the Viking's workouts. Come spring I'll plant her a garden, with catnip and maybe some sunflowers to draw the little birds she loved to watch.

Just when I think I've cried myself out, I find more tears.
